2021 Land Values - Valuer General NSW

The Valuer General offers land value summaries for residential, commercial, industrial and rural properties in all local government areas and different regions  across NSW.

The summaries discuss the movement of land values in each area, as well as:

  • Land value trends – These show the overall movement of residential, commercial, industrial and rural land values over 12 months. 
  • Median land values and sale prices – These graphs show the movement of median land values and sale prices over five years. We only publish graphs if we have enough property sales for them to be meaningful. 
  • Typical land values for all council areas – We use these as our benchmark for valuations. See Valuation method for more information.
  • Added value of improvement tables – These show dollar values per square metre for the added value of improvements to a local government area’s main residential property types. By analysing property sales, we learn how much these improvements add to land value.
